Billion page views -- math doesn't work[edit]

If a billion page views were spread over a *day*, that would be 1000000000/86400 = 11,574 hits a second. For 24 hours, continuously. If a million fans signed up as the promoter claimed, each would have to have hit the site a thousand times.

I can understand how quite a few hits could come in as users furiously reload the page waiting for the moment when the lottery becomes accessible, or something like that, but a billion hits can't be an accurate number. Information that's clearly inaccurate won't do even if you can find a citation where someone claims it. I'm going to say in the article that the claim probably isn't true, and hopefully not watch the fireworks fly.

Also, the claim came from the promoter, who'd tend to embellish things.75.24.107.36 (talk) 06:39, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

While I agree the 1 billion claim is circumspect, we cannot editorialise or post OR no matter how unlikely a claim is. However it's generally accepted that we don't have to mention every wacky claim someone has made so I just removed the claim completely. Nil Einne (talk) 09:59, 8 January 2008 (UTC)
I'm the person who originally posted this argument (possibly at a different IP), and FYI I'm fine w/this resolution. I had really wanted to remove the claim myself.75.24.215.16 (talk) 08:54, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Intro paragraph[edit]

Just a tiny complaint or two. First I think the intro to the article should read something along the lines of being a benefit concert headlined by Led Zeppelin. Second, that was Led Zeppelin performing. Anybody can argue all they want that it isn't Zep without John Bonham present, but the screen said Led Zeppelin, the tickets said Led Zeppelin, etc. If we're gonna argue that, than Lynyrd Skynyrd isn't Lynyrd Skynyrd anymore. Thanks. --Bluorangefyre (talk) 23:01, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Correct Infobox?[edit]

Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert
Concert tour by Led Zeppelin
Location The O2, London
Start date December 10, 2007
End date December 10, 2007
Legs 1
Shows 1
Led Zeppelin concert chronology
Tour Over Europe 1980 Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert
Ahmet Ertegün Tribute Concert
Benefit concert by Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin concert chronology
Tour Over Europe 1980 Ahmet Ertegün Tribute Concert

The top infobox is the current infobox which gives Information about a Tour. Whereas the one underneath is the one I have just made which gives information about a single concert rather than a tour. Because it wasn't a tour. What do you think? If I don't recieve any replies within a week then I will change it myself. tsunamishadow (talk) 10:44, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
